"Baby, Will Be All Right": Man Sings To Daughter Driving Through Wildfire

Tim Billow 62 tries to save his plantings in his backyard as the Woolsey Fire burns in Malibu

Powerful video footage has emerged of a dad singing to his daughter as they attempt to escape the wildfires that are now raging in California.

The Camp fire has left nearly the entire town of Paradise in ruins and the Allen's have said that they believe they lost their home.

A burnt vehicle where human remains were found earlier, rests against a tree in Concow, California on November 11 after the Camp Fire ripped through the area.

The town of Paradise, where the family live, has been completely engulfed in flames and many homes have been destroyed by the fires that started last week.

"There's so much fire".

The couple share two daughters, 8-month-old Jordan who went with Whitney and 3-year-old Olivia who was in a second vehicle with him following behind. "We're gonna get on fire", Olivia is heard telling her father in the video, shared on Facebook by Whitney Allen. The eerie scene is enough to strike fear into the hearts of any adults or child, making it all the more impressive that Allen remained calm and cautious, assuring his young daughter that they would make it through the ordeal. "We're going to stay away from it, and we'll be just fine", he tells her in the video. "We're doing all right".

Whitney Allen told KTVU that her husband was good at staying calm under pressure, a skill she puts down to his military background.

Donald Trump has defended missing memorial ceremony because of the rain
On Sunday morning a topless feminist activist from the group Femen made it close to Trump's motorcade on the Champs-Élysées. The two men struck a more friendly tone as they opened their meeting at the grand presidential residence.

Whitney Allen told KTVU that her husband's military training helps him stay calm in high-pressure situations "He was of course anxious, at one point we both thought we weren't going to make it out", she said.

"I can't see my mom", Olivia exclaimed at one point, urging they go back home.

Moments later, the two emerge unscathed.

"Look we're passed it, we're out of it!" he excitedly says to her as the road opens up again. Allen says, audibly relieved.

"You did it!" his daughter exclaimed.

"We did it together", Allen responds, before accelerating further into safety.

The Hill Fire in Thousand Oaks has charred more than 10,000 acres by Friday morning and the Woolsey Fire in Malibu has burned at least 8,000 acres, officials said.
